Blurb: Olivier Bellamy has it all, the looks, the money, the personality. As a talented young doctor, he has the world at his feet, so it seems only natural that he should have a job as special as he is. Taking on the position of private family physician to the billionaire, Kurt Bronson, he counts his lucky stars that he’ll never have to pull another double shift again.
But his new job isn’t as perfect as he expected. When an assassination attempt is made on Bronson’s life, Olivier finds himself in the firing line, and in the line of Detective Munro’s inquiry. With a past as deep and mysterious as his eyes, Munro must protect the family. And this also means protecting the young, attractive family doctor.
Soon, the two find their lives entwined and neither enjoys it for a second. The cop hates the doctor’s squeaky-clean image while Olivier is far from impressed by Munro’s drinking or the chip on his shoulder. But as danger engulfs Olivier’s life and his only hope is the damaged detective, the pair realize they’re not as different as they first thought.
Sparks fly as fast as the bullets until one night in a motel changes everything.
One night that will bond them forever.
Review: I read a lot of books and when I find one that appeals to me, I look forward to sitting in my overstuffed recliner with Broadway show tunes playing softly in the background, and getting pulled into the story.
Save Me by Jae Robbins had that appeal as I read the blurb on Amazon. An interesting book, for sure. The idea had me hooked and Robbins kept my attention for quite a while as I read. Imagine you’re a doctor working in a stress filled emergency room environment. Also imagine that you’re simply burned out. What do you do – quit, move into private practice, try for a different position in the hospital? All seem like possibilities for Oliver, but an opportunity fell into his lap that made everything else pale in comparison. The position of private doctor to the son of a wealthy business mogul was too much to imagine, yet that’s exactly what happened. But all was not what it appeared to be.
When bullets start flying and Oliver is faced with the strong possibility of his own death, the job losses the luster that it had. “What have I gotten myself into?”
As I said earlier, Robbins kept my interest as the story moved forward, but something happened. The second half of Same Me, was rushed and didn’t have the same appeal as the first half had. I wondered if Robbins got tired of the story line, or if time constraints got in the way. Whatever happened, the mystery and intrigue was no longer there. The story could be amazing if the mystery was drawn out, the characters were more deeply developed, and Oliver found himself in up to his neck. But none of that happened so the book came to an abrupt halt, the mystery came into view and Oliver found himself without a job, once again.
Give Same Me a try and see if you find it more appealing than I did.
